    The exact number of words in the English language can be estimated at anywhere between 171,476 words in current use (contained in the Oxford English Dictionary, Second Edition) and 988,968 words according to Global Language Monitor. Among these are: • Nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs • Exclamations, interjections, and prepositions • Prefixes and suffixes • Words of foreign origin • Obsolete and archaic words • Academic words • Technical, medical, scientific, legal, business, and other jargon that is specific to a particular field or subject matter • Slang and colloquial words, and idiomatic expressions From these numbers you can conclude that learning vocabulary is a daunting task. And it is particularly daunting to learn vocabulary for the TOEFL® test, when vocabulary questions make up only a small par t of the whole test. Keep in mind, however, that you need vocabulary not only to answer vocabulary questions but also to understand what you read and hear and to express your ideas in writing.
